Dennis is an expert headshot photographer with 15 years experience photographing executives, actors, doctors, lawyers, musicians and the occasional Irish Setter.
Sessions with Dennis are relaxed, friendly and fun. His goal is to show you at your best, using flattering light and body positioning to make images which exude confidence and approachability. This means natural smiles and expressions and no excessive Photoshop retouching (which isn’t fooling anyone!)
Dennis offers quick turnaround and free online image hosting. He works out of studios in Baltimore and the Washington, DC area, and is also available for location shoots (handy for larger groups and people with tight schedules).
Dennis has gone to great lengths for the perfect portrait, including bedding down next to flea-ridden goats, traveling in dugout canoes and braving the DC beltway at 5pm. His work has taken him from the jungles of Colombia to the mountains of Pakistan, and from the White House and Vice President’s Residence to the halls of Congress.
Dennis uses his mastery of natural and artificial lighting to convey whatever mood is appropriate for his client’s needs – everything from dark and moody to bright and fun. His talents have brought him hundreds of portrait commissions over the years for editorial clients like the Washington Post and New York Times as well as for institutional and corporate clients such as Lululemon, the American Red Cross, Northeastern Law School and JP Morgan.
His work has won awards in the national Pictures of the Year competition, three Maryland State Arts Council Grants, an Arthur Burns Fellowship to work at the German magazine Stern, and two Fulbright Fellowships for work in Pakistan and Cambodia.
This blog is a glimpse into Dennis' life frolicking with rock stars, supermodels and billionaires (ahem). You can also see some of his recent photo assignments, personal work like his Hampden alley portraits and music video, and find tips for preparing for your shoot with him. There are also a few random bits like tales from his paragliding missions over central China and Iquique, Chile.
